Taketomi Island


This is Taketomi Island, ten minutes by high-speed craft from Ishigaki Island. The islanders are proud of its tradition and lifestyle. They have preserved their housing tradition. As you see above, it is characterized by its red roof tiles and  coral limestone walls. And every house has a very attractive decoration called Shisa on the roof. It is regarded as guardian.
This is part of Skywatch Friday.
